The Benefits of Using Local Vendors

Written Specification – You’ll always get everything in writing for your records.

On site color matching and test material for mock ups – There’s no risk of choosing the wrong color or material when working with a local vendor. Get exactly what you want every time.

Product Adhesion Testing – Adhesion testing is essential for ensuring the long-term success of a project. A local vendor will perform product adhesion testing to ensure that materials are compatible.

Warranty specifications and execution – Local vendors stand behind their work, which is why they offer warranties to protect your investment.

Trouble shooting to find equipment or tools available to solve unique circumstances – Every project is unique, and a local vendor can find solutions that work for your specific project.

Help with determining coverage rates.

Coordinating material orders.

Custodian Report – A document recording all colors and products used on the project that are given to property owners, the contractor and local Sherwin Williams store for future reference.
